Are you install you esxi host with an image without vmware tool ?
You can verify it if you connect in ssh mode on your esxi and look at productLocker link :
# ls -lha
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Nov 26 2017 productLocker -> /locker/packages/6.5.0/
thank you for answer!
ESXi host was installed with tools. I have already created 3 VM's (2x win 2008r2 fnd 1x win 2012r2) and installed VMtools on them successfully.
But when i created new VM with win 2012r2 and tried to install VMtools on it today i got an error.
Yes, i have line:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 May 2 10:56 productLocker -> /locker/packages/6.5.0/
but in '/locker/packages' there is no '6.5.0' dir
I think you couldn't install any one else VMWare Tools on other VMs. So, I think you need use vmware KB to update your vmware tools on this host.
Or your VMware tools are store in other location.
You can verify your VMWare tools from SSH on your with this command.
# esxcli system settings advanced list --option=/UserVars/ProductLockerLocation
If String Value is equal to /locker/packages/6.5.0/, I assume you can't install more VMware tool on your Virtual machines with this host.
I assume it solved.
Mark your answer as resolve, please.
Sorry for not answering for so long time, I got tщ hospital with a backpain.
Due to result of
`ls -lha | grep store`
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 Jun 20 11:58 locker -> /store
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 49 Jun 20 11:58 store -> /vmfs/volumes/5ad59716-711b465e-0f87-ac1f6b808806
ls: store/|a#kaots ▒▒▒▒: Input/output error
ls: store/: Input/output error
I think partition where VMware tools are stored is corrupted.
So i'll reinstall ESXi on a new flash-drive.
Thank you for help!
